there aren't going to be crowds in the EFL until October either.
No but the EFL have said they will put a package together to support clubs and there will be income from ifollow. Will the national league do the same? and will there be paid for television live coverage?
The National League is covered live on TV (BT Sport). Anyway, as I've said before, I think it's inconceivable now that promotion and relegation between League Two and the National League will be cancelled.
It may not be cancelled Martin but my question was is it fair?
Obviously BT doesn't cover all games live and you can't subscribe to watch your team every week with the club getting money like on ifollow. Effectively the national league will not have an income stream comparable to that of the EFL and it is not beyond the bounds of probability that any relegated club will go out of business or at least into administration. If it's Macclesfield then I think we can almost certainly say goodbye to the club. I accept they are Quaky ground even in the league but at least they will have a chance of survival.
Surely you know before the start of last season they know the consequences if you get relegated to the pit of misery, your income is severely cut and you become forgotten, it's why no club wants to end up there.
They were raspberry all season and thoroughly deserved to go down, stop being a do gooding namby pamby.
Did they worry about our income when we went down?
